Wonder What’s On Michael Phelps IPOD?


We keep seeing swimmer Michael Phelps with his earphones from his IPOD on before every race.  Wonder what he’s listening to?

Yahoo Sports tells us:

Phelps listens to hip-hop music on his ipod. He says it helps motivate him before a race.

While his pre-race tracklist varies, Phelps has said that “I’m Me” by Lil’ Wayne has been on his playlist in Beijing. The track, off Weezy’s EP “The Leak” features the line:

Yes I am the best/and no I ain’t positive I’m definite/I know the game like I’m reffing it

Other artists that populate Phelps’ iPod include: Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Eminem and Outkast.  Occasionally, he’ll throw some techno into the mix, but usually keeps things rap-centric. Phelps doesn’t speak much about the specific songs he’s listening to, but he did tell NBC in 2004 that Eminem’s “‘Til I Collapse” was on his most-played list at Athens. In 2005, he created a playlist for the website Rhapsody that included the songs “Roses” by Outkast, “Burn” by Usher, “Overnight Celebrity” by Twista and  “Smile” by G-Unit.

Not exactly my playlist but what works for him……..
